The Dual Divided - Poem by M.D DINESH NAIR

Quiet flows a small river
And a small boat floats on its silence.
Nothing goes wrong for some time-
Nothing goes wrong....
There blooms a flower on the face of the lone sailor
As the river recedes and his boat triumphs forward,
He begins to sing a song-
A sweet song...
Nothing goes wrong for some more time-
Nothing goes wrong.
A small wind blows,
It grows into a storm next,
The song stops for at once
And the boat turns upside down.
The sea emerges
And it embraces the river.

Nothing goes wrong.

    Every second is wrapped in mystery…he lived the song when nothing went wrong.. that were the immortal moments.. but when the ship embraced the sea… he merged with the ultimate… so no regrets for he did live beautiful moments.
    ….a beautiful, melodious, thought provoking poem…written with elegance and quietness
